Secure Acapulco Delivery for 2-kilo passport? Fedex, DHL or ...?

My mother, who is getting on in years, lives in Acapulco and needs to apply for a Taiwan visitor visa (not a landing visa, which is automatic for US citizens). The problem is finding a secure way to send the passport to either Mexico City or Houston. Fedex has no office in Acapulco. DHL does have an office there, but their unhelpful web pages
do not inspire confidence, and my inquiry about "prepaid envelopes" and pickup options to "mail a US passport" was answered with a slightly brain-dead request: "we need ur document weight and ur document outer package size." Seriously, has the US (or any other country) ever isssued an A3-size 2-kilo passports?
My question: Is there any QUICK & SECURE way (avoiding DHL if possible) to send a passport plus a prepaid return envelope from Acapulco to Mexico City or Houston, Texas? Note that I am not in Mexico: I need to find a quick and easy solution for my Mom, who cannot get around easily.
